Stelling usually hosts the talkSPORT breakfast show with Rangers icon Ally McCoist, but the former striker was not present for Monday’s instalment and instead it was Andy Townsend. A Rangers and Celtic title debate broke out regardless as Stelling addressed McCoist’ absence, while also giving the current champions the incentive after a hard to stomach Ibrox blow.

Stelling: “A lot of you are asking where Ally McCoist is this morning. Well, Ross County 3 Rangers 2 explains everything. Ross County play in Dingwall by the way. Population 5,500 and they have never, ever, ever beaten Rangers."

Townsend: "They were one down as well."

Stelling: "Yeah, they went one down as well and it's a body blow as far as Rangers' title hopes are concerned."

Townsend: "They can still do it though."

Stelling: "Of course they can. They're four points adrift but still have a game in hand and still have Celtic to play as well. But they've lost half-a-dozen- times this season, not just to Ross County, but to Motherwell, Aberdeen and Kilmarnock as well. So it's not been a vintage season, even though they are in the title race."
